Denise was enjoying a normal Saturday when she suddenly collapsed and went into cardiac arrest. At the hospital, she was diagnosed with Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy and an irregular heartbeat which eventually caused her heart to stop beating. Specialists at the Cottage Heart and Vascular Center inserted a pacemaker to help control Denise’s heart rhythm.
